The Venardos Circus, a unique Broadway-Style Circus will perform in three Western Washington cities between June 26 through July 28. First stop will be in Tacoma’s Wright Park, 501 S I St., with performances running June 26 through July 7. Next up is STAR Center, 3873 S. 66th St., July 10 through 21. Its final stop will be in Lake Stevens July 25-28, as a featured part of Aquafest. Created by former Ringling Bros. Ringmaster Kevin Venardos (veh-NARR-dos) in 2014, the Venardos Circus wraps world-class animal-free circus acts into a Broadway musical-style format dubbed, “The American Circus with the heart of a Broadway Show.”
Guests can expect to be transported back in time to the center ring of a centuries-old tradition; but one that has been reinvented for the next generation. With an amazing assortment of aerialists, acrobats, juggling, hand-balancing/contortion, comedy, daredevilry, magic, musical production and much more, this amazing circus experience will truly delight adults and kids of all ages. Venardos Circus proudly features its own custom-made big-top, a classic red-and-white striped tent, with an intimate feel and limited seating. The circus performers also are the crew in this 15-person traveling tour who are completely self-contained, much like the original circus tradition.
“Circus is part of America’s cultural fabric and we want to keep that tradition alive for generations to come,” explained Ringmaster Kevin Venardos. “We look forward to bringing our Broadway-style circus show BACK to Western Washington, Tacoma for the second year, our fourth year visiting the greater Tacoma/Seattle area. Western Washington has been very welcoming for us in the past so we can’t wait to see everyone!”
